The Love Language, Gross Ghost, The Toddlers

When: Fri., Nov. 9, 9 p.m. 2012

Stu McLamb recorded the first Love Language album mostly by himself, writing the bulk of the record in his parents' Cary home after the breakup of a previous band and some regrettable life decisions. That burn-to-shine, self-titled debut of garage-fi pop, rock and soul propelled McLamb and the large band he formed to national tours, media acclaim and, most important, a contract with Merge Records. By the time The Love Language released the follow-up, 2010's Libraries, McLamb's ensemble had coalesced into a tight support group capable of holding sway in front of a few thousand people as the opening act in a Cary amphitheater. In the two-plus years hence, talk of and sessions for the third Love Language LP have happened, as has another monumental shift in lineup. Tonight, McLamb will headline the big local room with another new ensemble, confirming that his consistent talk of a democratic Love Language eventually cedes to the cut-and-run impulses heard in his breakup tales. Two excellent locals, The Toddlers and Gross Ghost, open. —Grayson Currin
